Can't be healthy or sustainable....why isn't he being rotated/rested? He'll wear himself out before long

That's what Saints fans say but it appears the coaches aren't listening.  There seems to be this theory that because he can play 80 minutes he always should play 80 minutes.  Fans think Hohaia should be spelling him.

If Roby was exhausted then i'm surprised because against the Bunnies he was very quiet,

As for Carney being offside,on Jon Wells review he was clearly onside

I've just watched the game back and while Cas were onside for the banana kick (final try), Carney was definitely offside for the crossfield kick (which is the kick I was referring to).  Wells also stated that the next to last try from Cas, where Makinson came in, should never have been allowed as there was a clear obstruction from Shenton in the build up.  So far from Cas being badly done to they had two tries that never should have been allowed.

 

However, Saints still won so I won't make an issue out of it. :blum:

The replay at the stadium were from angles which didn't show that.  I'm just watching the match back now so I'll see what they say.

 

Roby made 45 tackles in the match against the Bunnies and he played the full 80 minutes, just as he did again tonight.  The Bunnies identified Robes as our main attacking threat so of course he was quiet.  He was given little space.  We had no other attacking threats last Sunday.

Roby was exhausted.  He should have been spelled tonight and Cunningham is a dunce for not putting Hohaia on the bench. 

 

Cas were their own worst enemies and so why people are trying to make out they were robbed I don't know.  That's just silly.  First it was the Dragons who were robbed in the first game of the season and now Cas.  Maybe it's more about coming up against a team that may at present lack a halfback and be a bit naff here and there but they have grit and determination and don't give up.  Cas had two weeks to prepare for this game; Saints had a five day turnaround and most of the team played in both those games.  It wasn't a pretty game to watch and I certainly can't see much in the way of positives from Saints' performance but we won fair and square.

 

Let's not forget the Cas try from a kick which found the winger miles offside.

Well done Widnes.  They've trumped everyone. 

 

I honestly don't think other clubs should try and do something with their shirts because Widnes have just nailed it.  Anything else would look like an after thought.
